Abstract
The events of 9/11 gave rise to a huge increase in studies on political violence and terrorism. Horgan (2005) and Bouhana & Wikström (2008) postulated that the increase in studies has not led to an increase in the understanding of political violence. Horgan argues that theoretical cloudiness around the concepts of extremism and terrorism impedes our understanding of the phenomenon and its causes. This makes it also very difficult, if not impossible to make broad policy developments. This contribution focusses on the relevant causes of right-wing political violence, tested in a large-scale web survey among adolescents and young adults in Belgium, as a starting point for preventive policy measures. It should be noted that prevention is highly developed in Scandinavia and may constitute a possible run for local initiatives in Europe.
